UPDATE: The Custom Build Summit has been postponed until 9th July 2020, due to the coronavirus outbreak. If you have purchased tickets, these will be transferred to the new date.
Homebuilding & Renovating has launched the Custom Build Summit to help transform housing delivery in the custom build sector.
The brand new professional-focused event will take place at the NEC, Birmingham, featuring expert presentations, panel discussions and breakout sessions.
The Custom Build Summit has been set up in partnership with the National Custom and Self Build Association (NaCSBA) to accelerate housing delivery through custom build.
The event will bring together housing experts, policy makers and custom build professionals to review the challenges facing growth in the sector, and how these can be overcome.
Jason Orme, Content Director of Homebuilding & Renovating, said: “This Summit is all about putting the key stakeholders in this emerging industry together to find out the best ways forward, understand best practice and learn from others, as well as find out the very latest on government legislation, policies and insight.
“There has been a lot of talk about the growing importance of custom build to the wider housing sector and some significant progress too. But as the market matures it discovers new hurdles as well as opportunities.”
Custom Build’s Growing Role
Custom build homes are facilitated in some way by a developer, enabling a more hands-off approach than a traditional self build, so could be a great option to help people get onto the property ladder.
The custom build sector was last year recognised for its importance among small and medium-sized house builders, and is one of the ways that can help solve the housing shortage in the UK.

The Custom Build Summit will look to expand the influence of the custom build sector, unlock business growth in the housing sector, and create a framework to opening up custom build for more people.
Orme added: “For anyone looking to understand custom build solutions better, or to grow their business in this emerging sector, it’s an essential visit.”
